Gunkcast 61: Superspreader, Cringecast, & Roadshow 3 (Part 1) (August 2021)

43:46 – In case you were wondering where the podcast has been, we are here to tell you that rumors of it’s demise have been greatly exaggerated! That’s right, Gunkcast is back for 2021 with an old school style rollicking road adventure for the show! Join Smidge and his two sons as they trek from Chicago back East to Washington D.C. & through to NYC. From the turnpikes of PA, to Gettysburg, to the nation’s capital, side journeys to Baltimore & Philadelphia, & finally NYC! This episode has it all!

Some random teaser notes for this episode: old school GPS technology still works, the turnpike tunnels of PA, Smidge’s sons re-brand his podcast, Gettysburg & finding the abandoned (zombie apocalypse) Eisenhower house, the big D.C. tour, Arlington Cemetery, Fort McHenry, the “Rocky Steps” in Philadelphia (& not seeing the Liberty Bell), the big NYC tour, Port Authority, Times Square, the Soup Nazi, Central Park, Lennon/Strawberry Fields, Rockefeller Center, the Staten Island Ferry, Uptown vs. Downtown, giant underground mall, & the emotionally overwhelming 911 Memorial. So much happened during this eventful road expedition that we are making this a two-part episode (for which the 2nd part includes a BIG surprise meetup)!

Also to note, Smidge’s current band The GMO’s provide the soundtrack to this episode for your quality music entertainment! Featured are tracks from their latest 2021 e.p. called Superspreader (as well as bonus studio outtakes and live performances)! Further musical inclusions are classic & well-placed snippets from indie bands The Pulsars & Skanatra.

Also, please share the love and listen to some of our favorite podcasts at: Onsug, Static Radio, The Hustle, & Rock Solid. A special intro tribute was done in this episode to the legacy of legendary podcaster Sam (from Insignificast & The Not New Review podcasts). He also is remembered and discussed extensively in a Static Radio episode done earlier this year (for which a group of us podcasters convened to take part in)… Farewell Sam.

SERMONS #9 – Abraham & Isaac (8/17/21)

29:05 – Once it appears that Abraham and Sarah’s “miracle baby” Isaac will survive to become a legitimate heir, Abraham sends the secondary heir and his mother the maid packing, then is shocked to find out that Isaac is scheduled to be the entrée at the Yahwelians’ next barbecue, with Abraham serving as grillmaster. Abe’s predicament is compared to that of Job, as well as to that of the Gregory Peck character in 1976’s The Omen. Was Abraham’s Kierkegaardian “leap of faith” justified by virtue of the absurd, or was it unjustifiable by virtue of the insane?

Tape Land 133 – Stormtoon Origins (Fall 2001)

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is tapeland5_300.jpg

1:35:07 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape or historic material from my personal archives.

In the fall of 2001, I had two major projects – Obliviana, a kind of occult entertainment system, and Bluffcosm.com, an Internet radio project. With short-lived project Stormtoon, I attempted to combine the two. While it didn’t go very far, I think it helped me see that combining the two sides was not worthwhile – and little over a year later I completely gave up on Obliviana and started The Overnightscape – which has led to The Onsug of today.

Note that for Bluffcosm, I would do “audio mining” which was bringing a tape recorder everywhere to capture weird or interesting audio to include in audio segments. That’s what you’re hearing on the first and later part of the tape.

Monday 10/22/01, “audio mining” (ranting in bathroom, inside somewhere, subway, street, beggar, on a train, weird singing, siren, trains going by, fire safety talk, jackhammer, train going by, subway, car starting), Sunday 11/3/01, Frank talking about Obliviana, Stormtoon, computer being repaired, audio in 1980, 9/11, Fuzzy Daupner broke up, details of Stormtoon, 209, Fortunoff, Willowbrook Mall, audio content, flexibility, back to “audio mining” (train, inside various places, on a train, sirens, announcement, construction sounds, street, child babbling on subway, outside somewhere), Friday 11/9/01, 8:48 AM, my apocalyptic dream (an alcoholic beverage called “Poison” from Scandinavia, end of the world, volcanoes off the coast of Georgia, trapped by polar bears and a lion in Washington state, a zen monastery in Japan, driving around at dusk looking at Christmas lights covering things, the lion enemy across a river, where the polar bears live, misunderstandings with the polar bears and more volcanoes, earthquake news, escape from the creatures, advice in Japan).
